HEART-STOPPING RESCUE: Homeless Poodle Runs Toward Freeway [VIDEO]

Running into the street is never safe, especially if you’re a small poodle! Thankfully, Hope for Paws, a nonprofit animal rescue organization, was there to help.

As they were driving along, they noticed a tiny, homeless poodle running towards the freeway. They knew they had to act fast. They started calling to him, hoping he wouldn’t run onto the freeway. Unfortunately, this was not an easy rescue…

The homeless poodle kept running away from the rescue crew! There were several moments when the poodle ran into the street and came close to being hit! At one point, the team had to split up in order to keep tabs on the dog.

One team member, Loreta, followed the poodle on foot, while the other team member ran back to get the car.

A mile down the road, the team member caught up to Loreta, but there was no sign of the dog. It’s as though he had disappeared. Both team members were exasperated and out of breath from all the running around.

Then, one team member had a hunch where the dog had went: A yard with an open fence. The team quickly went to check if the hunch was right and guess what? It was.

That’s far from the end of it though: The poodle comes close to escaping! Even though Loreta closed the fence gate, there’s a hole in the gate and the poodle dashes it! Loreta actually had to grab the poodle’s tail in order to stop him from escaping and running head first into oncoming traffic…

Thankfully, the homeless poodle realized quickly the team wasn’t there to hurt him, and became quite docile. They were able to leash him without any further problems and befriend him.

Loreta felt bad about grabbing his tail and even apologized! He seemed to accept the apology by letting her pet him. How cute! They decided to name him Sailor, and took him to the hospital to get cleaned up.

His coat was so badly matted they had to shave all of it off. That’s okay though, because he got the pampering he desperately needed. After they gave him a wash and towel dried him, he looked ike a new dog!

Sailor is now up for adoption!

This sweet poodle is now up for adoption. He’s currently staying with a foster family, but is ready for a forever home! To adopt Sailor, head over to Smooch Pooch Rescue’s site. Just contact them and let them know you’re interested in adopting Sailor.

 Share this video to spread awareness. It’ll help Sailor find a great forever home!
